Re: New Record? Post here.

I am on a residential block on clay with shale rock but basically on a side of a hill which can be a pain/impossible to dig when too wet or dry. In heavy rain water collects here but does slowly drain away but can remain boggy in places sometimes for a week after lots of rain. Thanks for explaining ...

Thanks Tony, you certainly have started spring entirely different to up here. I wouldn't mind some of your rain as it been very dry here since August ;) .

Re: New Record? Post here.

A new All-time record for Wind Run yesterday after about 10 hours of moderate to strong west to southwesterly winds from about 7:30 AM easing in the evening. This is not seen often and also brought dangerous bushfire conditions with a Severe Fire Danger (and which did caused bushfires). A maximum wi...

Re: New Record? Post here.

A new record for lowest air pressure of 995.3 hPa. The old record was 996 hPa on 16/10/2010 (major flooding rain) and this before using Cumulus. This was after tropical cyclone Debbie that crossed northern Queensland as a Category 4 system causing severe destruction which then moved south as an Ex t...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

I can confirm that with Cumulus MX build 3020 the dew point is being recorded the same as Cumulus 1. Thanks Steve.

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

For today with both Cumulus 1 and Cumulus MX ran off the logger, the dew point is differencing slightly. Is CumulusMX using the "slightly different algorithm" with the latest beta version or have you not changed it yet? CumulusMX (build 1019): High Dew Point 20.8 °C 11:15 AM Low Dew Point ...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

Mark: Both versions were not running at the times of those extremes. I generally run it off the logger twice daily so both should be roughly similar. However some days I do run Cumulus all day but not overnight. However I do not compare live to logger data because I know it will be difference. Steve...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

The extremes for dew point are being recorded slightly lower than Cumulus 1. I thought I would mention this, whether it is because Cumulus MX might calculate it differently or otherwise. Cumulus MX: High 18.4 14:45, Low 15.3 00:10 (from web interface index.html page) Cumulus 1: High 18.9 15:20, Low ...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

Updated to build 1018 and the average wind speed is now the same as Cumulus 1 and the wind chart looks much better. Before updating the apparent temperature and dew point was slightly different from Cumulus 1 but now is similar probably due to the different average wind speeds. There may be a differ...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

When you think about it that way, it does make more sense to use readings during the 10 minutes up to now rather than the last 5 minutes. As MX currently records a higher average than Cumulus 1, then the monthly averages will rise not because of an increase in wind but the method of calculation. An ...

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

I am happy with that as MX is calculating the average correctly. The station only sends data every 128 seconds but the average is reasonable. Thanks Steve.

Re: Cannot download logger data from La Crosse station

Both were from the logger and both were not running at the time of the max. The max gust was the same for both and with the same timestamp. Cumulus 1: Highest Gust 29.8 km/h (202°) at 11:15 Highest Speed (10 minute average) 12.5 km/h (F3) at 11:15 Wind Run 48.0 km Cumulus MX: Highest Gust 29.8 km/h ...
